It's already February and we are in full swing with the events of this semester.
Further down you can read about what we are doing in the near future.
You can always find us at our office at Övre Slottsgatan 7 (in the same building as the Uppsala Student Union) if you want to visit or book a confidential meeting with one of us. We know we say this a lot, but we are here for you regardless of belief, ethnicity, gender identity or sexual orientation. Nothing is too small or too big to talk about.
And remember to visit our website for more information about us and what we do.

"TO BE A HBTQ REFUGEE IN SWEDEN" WITH NAOME RUZINDAJNA.
Naome Ruzindana is born and raised in Rwanda and came to Sweden as a HBTQ refugee. Homosexuality is prohibited in Rwanda but despite that she came out officially and fought for HBTQ rights. After a while the situation became unbearable och she fled to Uganda and then Sweden a few years later.
Naome has continued to fight for human rights and HBTQ rights and is the founder of the organisation "Find hope". Last summer she also arranged Gävle Pride which became a big success.
➤ 25 February, 25 March & 22 April at 5pm in Helga Trefaldighets kyrka
The Taizé Prayer is a meditative service with a lot of music, songs and prayer. If you want to contribute by lighting candles, practising a song or reading a text in any language of your choice, we would love to hear from you!
A service is held every Wednesday at 6 pm in Helga Trefaldighets Church. (map)

THE GOSPEL CHOIR GOD TUNE
We meet on Tuesdays at 6.30–8.30 pm in Helga Trefaldighets Church.
Singing in a choir is a great way to socialize! The choir, which sings mainly gospel, is open to all students. We rehearse every Tuesday between 6.30–8.30 pm in the Helga Trefaldighets Church, next to the Cathedral. If you are interested, please contact us or just show up at the next session. There are no auditions and the choir is free of charge.
